Google Analytics cookies

We use Google Analytics as we like to keep track of what pages and links are popular and which ones don’t get used so much to help us keep our sites relevant and up to date.

Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains.

The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited. These cookies are only used to improve how a website works.
